Eli Mizrahi, owner of Mizrahi Grill, considers himself and his brother the “pioneers of the family.”
Mizrahi comes from a culinary background, earning a culinary degree in his native Israel and another degree stateside at Kendall College. He had worked in restaurants, banquet halls and Starbucks when, as he says, he “got the itch.”
“I wanted to do something else,” Mizrahi said. “I was like, ‘OK, I see myself at the same position, not going anywhere, and I have all these ideas.’”
That’s when Eli and his brother, Tomer, decided to open their own restaurant in Highland Park.
